We cruised with Azamara last year and booked a Sky Suite. We were on deck 8 and we had some noise when staff were moving the sunbeds early in the morning but it only happened once. We did not experience any engine noise at all. We had a wonderful cruise and met some wonderful people. In fact we made friends with another couple and we are going with them on" The Quest " in August. Most of the passengers are American which was great because you joined different people each night for dinner and the conversation was very interesting. We would have liked a few Formal evenings but maybe Azamara will do some in the future. This was a wonderful cruise and I can't wait to go again. Enjoy your cruise and have fun!!! Jan.

My advice - cancel your trip on this ship! Total waste of money - we had a balcony suite - which had to be taped up because of the cold air pouring in. Slept in jumpers for the first 4 nights and ate breakfast in our jackets etc - as did most of the passengers. Total nightmare and im glad its over!

DubaiCruising from Dubai and sailing around the UAE is still one of the winter hot spots for the UK cruise market. With flight times around 8 hours and direct services from the main UK airports its an attractive option. Often the flight choice will be 2 day flights and a night option which brings you into the city early hours of departure day. UAE Visas are stamped on arrival in your passport without charge. With the early departure after breakfast of the previous passengers often the ship w...
